Alhamdulillaah we have now come to the end of another year at Tuition Club Online and to celebrate the achievements of our home-schooled students, we held an end-of-year assembly.
During the assembly, some of our students were presented with certificates and gifts, and all students were awarded a certificate of completion.
Many of the online students presented their work and gave a short presentation which was lovely to see.
Well done to everyone who received a certificate and we hope the good work continues when we come back in the new academic year!
We would like to thank all parents for their continued support, as well as the tutors and students for all their hard work and effort throughout the year.
Wishing all our students and families a lovely summer break and we look forward to our students returning from Tuesday 31st August 2021 In shaa Allaah.

A line graph is a graph used to show changes over time, for example, changes in temperature through a day.
It is created by plotting points and joining them with straight lines.
As more than one line can be presented on the same graph (double or multiple line graph), line graphs are useful for comparing changes, which occur over the same period of time, for more than one group.
Students were guided through the process of drawing a line graph.
Students have been developing their understanding of using line graphs as a way of presenting data.
Children were asked to label the axes of line graphs and to interpret the data to answer questions.
They then moved on to more challenging activities using fluency, reasoning, and problem-solving questions.
Some of our private online students have been creating a visual number wheel to help with Arabic number recognition.
Using materials such as card, paper plates, scissors, popsicle sticks, butterfly clips, crayons to decorate, etc they were able to make these resources to help aid them in their Arabic learning.
Using a step-by-step guide the children first cut out a circle using the card and then divided the circle into ten equal wedges with a ruler and pen.
They then were asked to draw and colour each Arabic number on each of the parts/wedge of the circle.
To make the dial, they first cut off the end of a popsicle stick with the scissors to get the right length and then made a hole in one end.
They were then asked to make a small hole in the center of the card wheel.
Once this was completed, they then attached the popsicle stick dial to the wheel with a butterfly fastener through both holes.
These number spinners are perfect for learning the Arabic numbers and can be a fantastic Maths game for the students.
To challenge students further they can also use the number spinners to help practise their addition and subtraction skills in Arabic.
Some of our private students have been getting creative while learning Arabic vocabulary in the home.
By presenting and using objects in the home the students have been working on building their Arabic vocabulary and have had fun while doing this.
Tutors have then been able to check understanding using key questions during the online lessons.
Using a word mat with the vocabulary taken out. Can students remember the words?
If you say a word using the Arabic Language, can they draw the correct object?
To reinforce the basics, this cut, stick, and label activity has helped students associate objects and areas of the house as well as the Arabic vocabulary covered in various previous topics
As you can see the students have thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
Alhamdullilah Salafi Centre Online launched the kids Ramadhan course this year which ran over 3 weeks during Ramadhan.
They covered a range of different topics taught in an interactive way using exciting visual presentations, quizzes, and even a chance to work on some crafts/models at home with the family.
Students were provided a Ramadhan workbook to work through which included important topics all about Ramadhan.
Topics discussed included, how to prepare for Ramadhan, reminders & encouragement to perform good actions, virtues of Ramadhan, My Ramadhan Goals, and much more.
Workbook activities such as Word Search and Crosswords were used to help in vocabulary building and students’ reasoning skills. Puzzles were used to identify and understand important key terms used within topics covered.
Different learning styles were taken into consideration when compiling the course materials and for the delivery of lessons, for example, a step-by-step reasoning approach was taken to benefit from the sequential steps of completing a crossword which helped auditory learners. Kinaesthetic learners were able to enjoy multi-task strategies required to solve the puzzles so these activities were beneficial to all learning types.
Instructional activities were also included which children completed themselves and with the family at home.
The course was designed for the children in order to teach them about the importance of Ramadhan with the focus on making them feel productive, engaged, and excited while learning about Islam.
Take a look at the course highlights that we have posted below!
The children have settled back for the new term here at Tuition Club Online and have been super busy getting stuck into many hands-on creative projects.
From time, we like to share the children’s work so that they feel appreciated and experience a sense of achievement for all their hard work and efforts during the term.
During History some of the children were set assignments and projects related to Ancient Rome.
One of the projects included a Roman Food Dish whereby the children were given instructions on how to research ancient Roman food dishes and then were asked to recreate the dish for their Roman banquet. The children then wrote a summary of their chosen food dish and were then asked to create a ‘modernized’ version of the food dish to share with fellow students. The last part of the project involved writing a summary comparing and contrasting the food dish with the ancient Roman dish that they researched. Have a look at the images of their wonderful work that we have presented below.
For Maths homework some of the students created posters on bar charts including information about what needs to be included in a bar chart and some examples. Using the session PowerPoint slides, the children could draw out key information and use as a guideline to complete their posters.
As we are in the month of Ramadhan the children also had fun creating some Arts and crafts. Some students created some paper lanterns and decorated the lanterns at home for the family to all join in and display. Last week the children also took part in a Ramadhan activity focusing on discussing the importance and virtues of Ramadhan which was a nice way to benefit from the remaining days of Ramadhan.
The Tuition Club Online is now closed for the remaining days of Ramadhan & Eid and will resume week commencing Monday 17th May 2021 In shaa Allaah.
We hope you all have a lovely break and benefit from the remaining days of Ramadhan and wish you all a wonderful blessed Eid.

Last Friday was the end of Term 2 at Tuition Club Online and to celebrate the achievements of our online students, we held a ceremony online.
During the online assembly, we shared the wonderful work that our online students had completed with parents and tutors.
We presented and showcased the various work that the children had produced and had a few student speeches.
The students had the opportunity to see the achievements made by different age groups.
We therefore recognise the importance of engaging students and giving them a platform for public speaking.
As a result, we have seen the students build confidence and strengthen oral communication skills which has been a delight to see.
Students were rewarded for their exceptional efforts and were presented with certificates and gifts.
Have a look at their amazing work below!
Our age 6-7 online students have been learning how to tell the time to the nearest minute and hour on an analogue clock.
Knowing how to tell the time accurately is a very important skill.
The children have been using the language including ‘past’ and ‘to’ when telling the time and have been using Roman numerals on clock faces when answering questions which has helped practise fluency, reasoning, and problem-solving questions.
On a standard analogue clock face, there are 12 hourly increments. These are sometimes represented by Roman numerals.
Roman numerals up to VII represent the hours in a day.
Once children have mastered how to tell the time to the nearest minute, they can progress to telling the time past the hour.
Our online computing students have been learning about algorithms and programming using scratch.
The children have been focusing on how to use the program to create, move and size characters and then how to sequence instructions including the use of a repeat command.
Using Scratch, the children are learning to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively using the computer.
The students have also been using Code.org and have been presented with additional home learning resources to develop their computer skills at home.
Our online students have been learning all about the different properties of shapes.
The students got to learn that a corner on a 2D shape is called a ‘vertex’ and the plural is ‘vertices’.
In the first task, they counted the vertices on various familiar 2D shapes.
In the second task, children got to spot the odd one out in groups of shapes by looking at the different numbers of vertices the shapes have.
Questions were given to the students to encourage reasoning and discussion.
These helped strengthen children’s abilities with describing the properties of shapes.
